Umbria boasts herding and cheese-making traditions that go back for centuries. Join us for a visit to dairy farms where we can see how fresh, local milk is transformed into cheese, using the most modern technologies while respecting tradition. The Umbrian landscape is especially adapted to sheep herding, and the local pecorino – sheep milk cheese – is particularly appreciated.
Umbria’s cheese production tradition dates back nearly 3,000 years. The local pecorino is recognized as being of the highest quality compared to those of other regions, however it’s less well known at the national level. Our cheese itineraries is the perfect way to discover them!
A cheese tasting is a unique experience that unveils the ancient flavors of Umbria. Book a tour and fall in love with our countryside, its soul, and its ancestral tastes!
